All Boston College Graduate School of Social Work students are assigned an advisor to monitor and support them in their placements. The advisor serves as a liaison between the school, the student, and the affiliated agency to assist them in meeting the educational requirements for field education and integrate learning in the classroom and field.
Each student is assigned to a supervisor employed by the agency where the student is placed. Field supervisors are primarily responsible for developing a field educational plan and providing ongoing supervision and consultation to the student.
The Field Education office annually invites field interns and their supervisors to the Mary Mason Appreciation Breakfast for Field Supervisors. Named in honor of Mary A. Mason, the first Director of Field Education at the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, the event is an opportunity to thank supervisors for their significant contribution to our students' training and education.
